Australian Paniceae (Poaceae).

Abstract

308 taxa of the Australian Paniceae (45 genera and 263 subgeneric taxa) generated from an automated database held at the Research School of Biological Sciences of the Australian National University are presented in alphabetic order of genera. The 308 taxa were described against a character list of 208 characters, comprising 42 characters for vegetative features, 52 for inflorescence features, 104 for spikelet details, 1 for cytology and 1 for nomenclature. All taxa are scored as native or introduced and distribution by state, by Barlow's botanical regions and Moore's vegetation regions are included together with distribution maps for each of the 263 subgeneric taxa. Data on moisture requirements and flowering period, general remarks and representative specimen citations are also given but anatomical or physiological descriptions are not included.
